I'm a fan of Ina Garten so it's only natural that I love the country kitchen that she designed for House Beautiful'skitchen of the year in 2009. I know I've shared white kitchens before and they aren't for everyone but I am still enamored by them. One of the reasons this kitchen appeals to me is the open ceiling with the exposed rafters and beams. It is so light and airy. Definitely a kitchen that wouldn't be hard to spend time cooking and eating in.
I am a design enthusiast + wannabe crafter + mom who loves to get packages in the mail, prefers brunch to breakfast, wishes she knew how to play the piano, loves the smell of rain, and always has room for dessert.
